Mount Hollywood Hike
Enjoy one of the best urban parks in the whole world, Griffith Park, look down on Los Angeles from above and visit the famous Observatory.
For the Mount Hollywood Hike we’ll meet you at the entrance to the park, by the Greek Theater. You’ll then hike up through the Bird Sanctuary and into the Hollywood Hills as we tell you about the early inhabitants of the Los Angeles area, the Tongva. As we climb the hills you’ll see Los Angeles spread below you, so it’s a great way to get an understanding of how the city developed and how the different areas connect with each other. From the summit of Mount Hollywood you can see almost the whole of L.A. – the San Fernando Valley, Glendale, downtown and the Westside. From there we’ll follow the trails down, stopping at some of the best places to get photos of the Hollywood Sign, to the Griffith Observatory. We’ll finish your Mount Hollywood Hike by giving you a quick tour of the Observatory, before leaving you to enjoy this fantastic free museum.
Great exercise and unforgettable memories!
